New, 25 comments

ESPN has ranked Vanderbilt last in each of their SEC positional rankings so far this summer. So how sweet will it be when Caleb Azubike, Stephen Weatherly, Nigel Bowden, and Adam butler prove them wrong?

It turns out ESPN doesn't think much of Vanderbilt Football. Year two of the Derek Mason experience has landed the Commodores dead last in every SEC position ranking they've published so far. That's one thing when you're discussing an unsettled quarterback situation that lost its most likely starter to medical school this spring. It's another when you're talking about a defensive front seven that returns five starters and looks every bit like the heart and soul of this team. Here. See for yourself in Saturday's links:

SEC preseason position rankings: offensive line. Vanderbilt got zero love from ESPN BEFORE Andrew Jelks got hurt. The silver lining is that they can't rank them any lower, even after that injury.

SEC preseason position rankings: Running back. Alright, now you're just ranking Vanderbilt last because you're lazy. And you think C.J. Duncan is playing this year.

SEC preseason position rankings: Front seven. YOU'VE GOT TO BE F***ING KIDDING ME.

Football. Vanderbilt faculty and staff invited to practice on August 25. Coffee, doughnuts, and Commodore Football. Please hire me, Vanderbilt. I've been sending murals made from cut-up magazine ads for the past several years, and never a response.

Commodores close to landing 2017 targets? ($) You need a premium account to see it, but 247Sports's Jesse Johnson thinks that Vanderbilt is close to bringing in some 2017 recruits.

VIDEO: Sherfield ready to shine. Trent Sherfield could work his way into a starting role this fall. VandySports.com caught up with him to talk about summer practices so far.

Bowling. Bowling announces its 2015-16 schedule. Our bowling team was winning national titles before baseball and tennis made it cool. They're basically the hipsters of Commodore athletics.

SEC Now hosts rank their top five SEC teams. Guess where Vandy winds up?
